The new building for the Freie Volksbühne in 1913 gave the still recognizable medieval city structure a new urban quality. The new building for workers' culture moved this quarter close to the more important, economically vibrant life around the still disordered Alexanderplatz.

With the beginning of the Weimar Republic, it was important to design downtown East. From here, the competition in 1929 provided new architectural pictures for the growing city, Peter Behrens and Hans Poelzig realized clear characteristics.

We walk through these contemporary testimonials alongside current inserts of international understanding of architecture since the 1960s, in which living and administration are still shown and transformed in large cities.

in cooperation with the Bauhaus Archive / Museum of Design
